This skillet steak is perfect as it is but if you want to change it up, try:
  • Try it for Breakfast: Try cracking some eggs over the top at the end and serving this as a super spectacular breakfast treat.
  • Use Tri Colored Potatoes: To make it even prettier try using the try colored potatoes in this dish.
  • Amp up the flavor: Sprinkle with a little fresh Parmesan cheese and a little crumble of bacon!
